  • Other planes
  • A plane and a line
  • A plane and a point
  • A plane and a curve
  1. Defining new planes makes it easier for us to apply features based on sketch planes that do not exist, which provides us with more flexibility in modeling.
  2. The swept boss is a feature that allows us to add materials by sweeping a profile along a path. Swept cut allows us to remove ...
